In January of 2020, our corporate partner, VivoBlu Inc. began a partnership with Arise Rwanda Ministries in Boneza, Rwanda. A small team of Christian entrepreneurs from Denver, Colorado, led by Jeff Hutcheon, traveled to Rwanda with 250 filters to distribute to families, schools, and the genocide’s widows.
On the day of distribution, the community gathered for a celebration as each family received their double bucket system. The community leader was grateful for the filters because he knew it would save lives and personally impact their health, education, and finances. In total, these filters are providing clean water to over 1,250 people!
Today, ten months after receiving Vivoblu Inc. filtration systems, each family is experiencing clean water’s health benefits. We look forward to our ongoing partnership with Arise Rwanda.
